Two people arrested in connection with the death of a seven-year-old Norfolk girl have been rebailed.

A man and a woman were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence after the tragedy in which Summer Grant, aged seven, from Hellesdon, died at an Easter funfair at a park in Harlow, Essex on March 26 last year.

An inquest opening in April heard the Valley Primary School pupil was fatally injured when a bouncy castle blew away.

She was treated at the scene by paramedics but died later in hospital from multiple injuries after the incident.

Essex Police has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Summer's death.

A 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man, both from Cambridgeshire, were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence following her death.

The pair have been rebailed, pending further inquiries, until May 2.
